– OJIBWE EXHIBIT
      AT THE WADENA
      COUNTY HISTORICAL
      SOCIETY’S MUSEUM

Sandi Pratt thought “If it’s that important for someone… to name
Wadena after a chief, that we should really be thinking about how
our heritage started and what a better way to do that with a new
Indian Exhibit.” Ojibwe artist Joyce Jackson Arndt of Verndale
created the Indian mural which surrounds the wall and doorway
into what will be the new Two Nations Indian Village exhibit area.
The mural gives you the feeling that you are walking into a Wigwam.

It is planned to have the Indian Exhibit room painted with a blue sky,
trees on the walls and a look of being outdoors in Indian territory.
I just love Indian history and will be doing research so the room will
most certainly honor the Ojibwe and the Sioux and interest the
members and visitors when touring our museum. We will present
Indian topics to the school kids and hang their work on a White
Pine Bulletin Board for public viewing.d to have the Indian Exhibit
